Andrew is very careful to stay on top of the bills. He seems to have everything worked out well. On Friday, he said to me that he had about $2000 from both jobs in the bank and $700 was the rent. He paid one of the bills and the others are for later in the month, after his next check. He decided to treat himself, both of us, really.
We knew we were getting a kinect on Saturday and Dance Central was on the top of his list. He also decided to get a 3DS. So, we went off to GameStop. We got a 3DS, 2 3DS games, Dance Central for the Xbox, and Infamous for PS3. The last two were BOGO at $8.99 each. Then we went to Walmart to grab Ocarina of Time for the 3DS.
Despite being a launch title, Ocarina of time is $40 both brand new and pre-owned. Walmart had it for $32, we thought. We went to Walmart where the guy behind the electronics counter told us that it was the Site-to-Store price and that it was $37 in the store. Of course, we could have paid the extra cash but we decided to buy it, while standing in Walmart on their website and ship it to the store. They already had it in stock so we knew it wouldn’t be a long wait. We went to Subway to have dinner and got the email while we were eating. So, we went back and picked it up.
On Saturday, we went and got the kinect and then went to “The Video Game Store” in Wilkes-Barre. We have one in Scranton but the main store is WB. Andrew grabbed a few games there, including a Zelda game for the NES. Then we came home and got to playing. Andrew set up the 3DS and messed around a little bit. Then he switched to the kinect to play Dance Central. I decided to play Ocarina of Time.
I know I’ve talked bad about the 3D but whenever I had a chance to see it in person, it was over Andrew’s shoulder in GameStop. The 3D doesn’t work that way. Seeing it in person AND playing a childhood favorite (OMG, it’s so pretty), I loved it. It’s a lot better than I would have imagine. AND it’s a must for Pokemon X and Y that comes out in October.
The only issue I’m having is that I want to play it while he plays. Sharing a system isn’t working. He said we might be able to get me one next check. I hope so. I really want Animal Crossing, too. I’ve heard great things about it, namely how addicting it is.
I’ve also decided I’m going to recommend getting a 3DS to my mom for Breya. Her birthday is at the end of the month but I don’t think she’ll be able to do it. I’m thinking a possible joint present from my mom and me for Christmas..? I know she’ll love it and ill be able to get her to play Animal Crossing with me. 🙂
